recipe box Wednesday

Recipe Box Wednesday starts the shiny new year with this entry ( I first ran

across one for Leverpostej, also known as Liver Paste, but I thought it

sounded a tad revolting...).  This recipe is never one I would pick up and

try, not being a huge cabbage fan, but the more I read it the better it

sounds.  Served up with some wonderful bratwurst, or pork roast, it could

be quite tasty!  And I can just hear my dad now "Oh Kris, you don't know

what you're missin' !"  He would probably request it be served with ring

bologna (oh no, evil childhood dinner memories come flooding back...)

Let me know your thoughts....

Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

1 med head chopped cabbage

1 tsp. salt

Almost cover cabbage with water, add the salt.  Simmer until almost soft

about 1/2 hour.  Pour off some of the water, leaving about 2 cups in pan.

Then add:

1/4 c. vinegar

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 1/4 cup sliced tart apples

scant teaspoon caraway seed

Simmer about 1/2 hour.  If U wish, add a little butter or bacon fat.

As always, this is typed just as it is written on the card.  I am sure your

house will smell quite fragrant after a few hours of cabbage cookin'....


  1. This is very good. Used to make it the first year we were married (42 years ago!). I think I served it with some kind of sausage (links or patties) and fried (?) apples. It was in my Betty Crocker Cooking for Two Cookbook. Wonder where that thing is.:-)

  2. There were apples somewhere. Not in the cabbage AND on the side, I wouldn't think. The first year we were married, I never repeated a dinner recipe. I thought that was really good. Jim, however, was hoping for some familiar dishes from time to time.:-)

  3. This sounds delicious! I LOVE red cabbage. Not sure I would add the bacon fat (cute).


Thanks for stopping by!
